The river above the Gold Falls once pooled here to create a broad mountain lake. Without the inflow from its headwaters, Yellow Lake is much lower than normal, but still retains water. Fish still swim in the water, all bright yellow, despite otherwise seeming to be of different species. Fish jump from the water with surprising frequency, gleaming brightly. At night, the fish glow like fireflies, illuminating the water in a starry display.
Upon closer inspection, the fish have tiny human-like fingers on their pectoral fins. The fingers grasp at anyone who dares pull one from the water. The fingers grasp at whoever pulls it from the water. Besides the glow and the fingers, the fish are not dangerous, and even make a good meal.
